Letter to the editor: Hooray for Safeway’s choice to carry cage-free Glaum eggs

To the editor: Many of us were pleased to hear that a number of local Safeways will now carry cage-free eggs from Glaum Egg Ranch.

In recent years, hundreds of major companies — such as Panda Express, Outback Steakhouse, The Cheesecake Factory and Telepizza — have been pledging to adopt cage-free egg policies and eliminate the worst suffering endured by chickens in their supply chains. We can support cage-free businesses such as Glaum Egg Ranch by exposing the inhumane standards held by companies refusing to do the same.
